Daniel Johnson of Lebanon, Tennessee, won the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) LBL Division tournament on Kentucky and Barkley lakes Sunday with a two-day cumulative catch of 10 bass weighing 32 pounds, 11 ounces. For his win, Johnson earned $5,943.

“I had three areas on the south end of Barkley Lake that I worked through both days,” says Johnson, who notched his second career win in BFL competition. “I targeted ultra-shallow cover like rock and wood – basically anything in less than 2 feet of water.”

Johnson flipped green-pumpkin or black and blue-colored tubes with ½-ounce Jenko Creature Weights. He also rotated in handmade balsa square-billed crankbaits. For crankbait colors, he said he preferred shad on Saturday and chartreuse with a black back on Sunday.

“The majority of my fish came from flipping, but I caught one key fish and a couple of keepers on the square-bill,” says Johnson. “I utilized the square-bill more early in the morning when I noticed shad up around the cover. Later in the day I flipped.”

Johnson says he caught eight keepers Saturday and six keepers on Sunday.

“Sticking with my gameplan was important,” says Johnson. “A lot of times, with those shallow fish, there aren’t enough of them for a two-day event, but I felt I could get two limits and two limits would go far. The fishing has been tough, but I knew there were some good, quality fish to be caught up shallow.”
